Handpicked stories for people who care about clean air.

Hey there,
It’s Amrit. As you know, Oxygen Mag is a weekly magazine with handpicked stories for people who care about clean air.
Today, we’re joined by Sarisha Perumal, an air quality scientist based in Pretoria, South Africa. In this issue, Sarisha has selected some important stories about air pollution in South Africa.
Why focus on South Africa? I invited Sarisha because we don’t hear much about South Africa in the global air quality discussions and social media, and I wanted to help change that. Also because South Africa’s air quality data isn’t on OpenAQ, our beloved Smokey hasn’t been able to bring you air quality reports from there! (Update: A few days ago, Dolugen added a network of air quality monitors from Richard’s Bay, a town in South Africa, to OpenAQ!)

Handpicked Stories For You 🙌
